Data collection, purpose of processing and legal basis

If you make an enquiry or an order, or enter into a contract with us, then we collect personal data about you.

The contact data that you have provided in the event of an enquiry, order, conclusion of contract, or through other means (e.g. business cards provided, or similar) is used exclusively for our own advertising purposes relating to our own products and services or may also be used to send you new and important information (e.g. offers, clarification of technical questions, product innovations, product announcements, product discontinuations, price adjustments, etc.). This may also take place in the form of a newsletter. You can object to the use of your email address at any time via We will subsequently delete your email address without delay.

We have a legal obligation to transmit data to public authorities such as tax authorities, supervisory authorities and law enforcement authorities.
